Survival Analysis in Social Work Research

Show Summary Details


Survival analysis is a method of analysing any data set that consists of time to event where the data set is not temporally completed. That is, where not all of the initial events have been succeeded by the end events. Its major advantage is that it allows the researcher to model the data using the whole set. Although widely used in other disciplines, with a few exceptions, it has received relatively little attention in social work. This paper provides a review of the method and illustrates its application in a study of child protection practice.
